Friday Weigh-In /My bucket List
I have made it through my first week and done fairly well.
I have been without gluten (no bread, cookies, snacks!) for a week and I don't have the cravings. My acid reflux has lessened and I have lost weight! Yeah! I have lost 3.6 pounds.
I have had a dull headache most days - which I am putting down to withdrawal, as I have also cut back on tea (which I always had to have with a treat). Today though no headache and I feel better.
There is still a bit of acid reflux, so am wondering if I need to cut milk - my children are lactose intolerant - maybe I may need to try this as well.
I created an art card for ICAD (an index card a day - for June and July) and I refer to it several times a day.
It is so true - I have to stick with this now - to improve my health and hopefully ease the pain in my knees.
For me, recording of my meals and snacks has been a very useful tool. I haven't started any exercise programme, altho we have been swimming 2x a week.
My overall goal is to : Lose 25 pounds and become fitter.
Goals for week 2:
1.Continue to record my food intake.
2. Drink more water. (I still have a ways to go to 8 glasses a day!)
3. Finish reading "UnDiet" by Meghan Telpner
4. Start reading "Wheat Belly" by William Davis
5. Check out a video on beginner yoga.
See you Wednesday for "Wednesday's Weighty Wisdom" - a look at what I am reading and learning about healthy lifestyles.
I have just discovered a great blog hop and it so fits in with my goal making.
Finish the Sentence Friday
My bucket list includes:
Many things and the list has changed over the years.
Right now, my huge goal is to get healthier and feel better than I have in years.
I also want to be a published author (working on editing a children's book now) and hold my very own art show. I would also like to set up an ETSY shop.
I would like to travel with my husband and visit special places like B.C and Newfoundland, and a return to Cayman Islands and Scotland.
I want to see whales in the ocean.
Most of all, though, I want to enjoy my retirement, with family and friends, and contribute in a meaningful way.
